Makoto is a Japanese playable character included in Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Makoto’s translated name means “Truth”. The female character debuted in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, she weights 110 lbs., and she has black hair and brown eyes.

Makoto’s role in Super Street Fighter 4 is also minimal, but unlike Ibuki, she enters S.I.N.’s tournament, to earn some money. The grand prize can help her to renovate her dojo, and return it to its former glory. Unfortunately, at the end of the game, Makoto returns home empty handed, because the prize was offered by Seth, who is killed.

The guide below presents all the moves, combos and special attacks that can be performed by Makoto in SSF4 Arcade Edition. Fans of the game, who wish to play with Makoto, can use the guide and learn how to execute all these moves, and eventually, beat their opponents faster.

NOTE: All moves were extracted from the game, while playing in the single player mode.
